Anyways... i replaced my head-to-manifold gasket. Doesn't seem to have helped anything, but i know that gasket was leaking. Still hearing an exhaust leak. The turbo-to-manifold gasket is NOT leaking, and i've replaced all the gaskets in the exhaust. No visible signs of leaking.

Driving me batty.

Is that a thing on MSMs? The huge brick shithouse cast iron manifold cracking?



Either way, no evidence of cracking.

Track update: Spent the weekend at Hallett with NASA and had a fantastic time. They even treated us to a clockwise session on Sunday - that was awesomely fun.

2 days of punishment and no leaks. Fast times were 1:33.1 and 1:37.1 clockwise on street tires.

Ran Autobahn last weekend with NASA, 2 days for a total of 8 sessions. No leaks yet. Fast time of 1:43.1. I need to learn to drive faster.
